In the recent overpressure with the hornady factory ammo there was a rather interesting side effect I noticed on the bolt carrier--the extractor was slightly bent in and down (definitely happened after the firing of the particular cartridge). I've noticed in other bulged and failed cases that there was a bending down of the rim in the area of the extractor (as I had mentioned before). I'm now thinking the cartridge possibly went into battery with the rim in front of the extractor.
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
